One of the things I love most about the SMF program is the diversity of our students. Last Friday, the SMF Council organized a dinner to celebrate the culmination of our capstone class. During the capstone class, all the teams were able to develop an equity research report about a company of our choosing. Two Fridays ago, all teams presented their final report to a panel of professors and the entire class.
I was really looking forward to meeting all kinds of people in the MAcc program. Reading about the program on Fisher's website indicated that I would be working not only with students from all over the US, but all over the world. While I definitely got these experiences to an extent in undergrad, I knew the experiences would have a much larger impact as a graduate student.

During my military career, I was afforded many opportunities to travel abroad to several foreign countries. My most memorable overseas trip was traveling to Germany. At the time I was 19 years old, fresh out of basic training and ready to see every inch of this planet as I could. So, as luck may have it, I got the opportunity to do a 3 week stint in Germany. I was ecstatic! It was my first "official" overseas trip and I couldn't wait to see all that Germany had to offer.
